    Hi! I've actually been a member for several weeks around here, but I just now found this thread! lol

    So I'll introduce myself:

    (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens?
    Yes, I'm brand new! Three families that I know have chickens, but this is the first time my family has tried it. [​IMG] I'm getting my babies at the end of this week. [​IMG]

    (2) How many chickens do you have right now?
    I'll be getting 6 on Sunday. [​IMG]

    (3) What breeds do you have?
    They'll all be Buff Orps.

    (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com?
    Web searching, desperate to find as much information I could about chickens. I found the right place! [​IMG]

    (5) What are some of your other hobbies?
    Photography, cooking, gardening and piano

    (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share.
    I'm the second of 6 siblings, I have wonderful parents, 4 dogs, 1 cat and a fish. I love photography (so expect plenty of shots of my babies to pop up [​IMG]) and I also play the piano.
